My mom’s recipe for Banana Split Cake isn’t actually cake at all but it is delicious!! It is creamy, cool and refreshing. It is a great dessert anytime of the year, but we usually have it at our Easter Picnic along with hot dogs/brats and cabbage au gratin. It is the perfect picnic recipe!

Butter!!! 1/2 cup for crust and 1/2 cup for filling.

Small amount chopped walnuts

Maraschino cherry halves

Melt or soften 1/2 cup of butter, mix with graham cracker crumbs. Press into your dish firmly, freeze for 5 minutes

Prepare
